The University 

ON the last day of May, in the year 1850, there met in the City 
of Chicago, at the office of Grant Goodrich, 109 Lake Street 
near Dearborn, nine men, Richard A. Blanchard, Jabez K. 
Botsford, Andrew J. Brown, Henry W. Clark, John Evans, Grant 
Goodrich, Zadoc Hall, Richard Haney, and Orrington Lunt, to con- 
sider the founding of a university in the vicinity of Chicago. The} 
agreed that "the interests of Christian learning demand the immediate 
establishment of a University in the North-west," and appointed a 
committee to petition the General Assembly for a charter. January 
28, in the next yea.T, 1851, Governor French signed the Act that 
incorporated "the Trustees of the Northwestern University." The 
name of the corporation has since been changed to Northwestern 

The first Board of Trustees consisted of thirty-six persons, some 
of whom were representatives of annual conferences of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church and some residents of Chicago or vicinity. The 
corporation as at present constituted consists of thirty-six trustees 
elected by the Board, and two elected by each of three annual con- 
ferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church, making a total of 

The charter provides that a majority of the Board shall be mem- 
bers of the Methodist Episcopal Church, but that no particular 
religious faith shall be required for those who become students at the 

Amendments have provided that other chartered institutions may 
become departments of the University; that all property of whatever 
kind or description belonging to or owned by the said corporation 
shall be forever free from taxation for any and all purposes; that no 
spirituous, vinous, or fermented liquors shall be sold under license or 
otherwise, within four miles of the location of the University. 

After considering several locations in the vicinity of Chicago, the 
Trustees selected for the University a tract of land on the shore of 
Lake IVIichigan, twelve miles north of the heart of Chicago. Here 
in 1855 the first University' building was erected, and about this 
location has grown up the City of Evanston, a beautiful residential 
city of thirty thousand inhabitants. The professional schools of 
Medicine, Law, Dentistry, and Commerce are situated in the city of

The Dental School 

THE DENTAL SCHOOL was founded and is maintained for 
the purpose of preparing young men and young women in the 
most thorough manner for the practice of dentistry, and for 
the promotion of dental science and dental literature. 

The reputation earned by this School is w^ell shown by the tabu- 
lation, on page 62, of the geographical distribution of students in 
attendance during the past year, from thirty-six states and nine 
foreign countries. 

The Dental School was organized in 1887 and three years later 
became a department of the University. In 1896 it absorbed the 
American College of Dental Surgery and for some years occupied the 
building on Franklin and Madison Streets, Chicago. It is now 
located in Northwestern University Building, at the corner of Lake 
and Dearborn Streets, Chicago, occupying the upper three floors of 
the building, over 60,000 square feet. 

The following men are deserving of permanent recognition for 
their devotion to this School, as evidenced by their work in Its 
development: Doctors Thomas L. Gilmer, G. V. Black, Edgar D. 
Swain, George H. Cushing, Theodore Menges, C. R. E. Koch, 
W. V-B. Ames and James H. Prothero. 

Special Notice — Students' Army Training Corps 

Under regulations recently announced by the War Department, 
a number of universities have been selected for the establishment of 
Students' Army Training Corps. Northwestern University is one 
of these, and the Dental School will have Its ow^n officers and corps. 
There will be ten hours per week of military training during the 
school year and six weeks in summer camp for those w^ho enlist for 
the training corps. 

All students over eighteen years of age are eligible to enlist. 
They Immediately become members of the United States Army, will 
be furnished with uniforms by the Government, and will be subject 
to active service at the call of the President. It is the expectation 
that members of this corps w^IU not be called to the colors until after 
graduation. This corps w^ill have ten hours per week of military 
training under officer instructors provided by the War Department. 
The regular schedule of the School will be modified to meet this 


It is expected that this training will qualify a considerable per- 
centage of the students to enter officers' training camps. 

Arrangements are being made for a drill ground located within 
easy walking distance of the School. 

The Enlisted Medical Reserve Corps 

Men of draft age, who have not been called for service by their 
local boards, may matriculate as Freshmen in the Dental School on 
or after August lo, 1918, and enlist in the Enlisted Medical Reserve 
Corps. It is the expectation that they will be permitted to continue 
the dental course to graduation unless their services are urgently 
needed. This provision has been made by the Government to encour- 
age attendance at dental schools in order that there may be assured a 
sufficient number of dentists to meet the future needs of the Army. 
S\ich students are not granted exemption, and are not permitted to 
remain in school unless their scholastic records are satisfactory. They 
will be members of the Students' Army Training Corps and their 
work will be under Government supervision. 


Northwestern University Building is in the transportation center 
of over three millions of people living within a radius of forty miles, 
a location especially advantageous for obtaining the great number of 
clinical patients needed in a dental school. See pages 36 and 37 for 
statement of number of patients and operations performed during the 
last School year. 

The operative clinic, sufficient in extent to accommodate the great 
clinic and the offices connected with it, is of the best design of con- 
struction, consisting of a single room with arched ceiling. It is on 
the sixth floor, with free light on two sides and abundant skylight. 
Adjoining the operative clinic is the prosthetic clinic, and on the same 
fioor is the senior prosthetic laboratory for crown and bridge work, 
the laboratory for porcelain and cast metal inlay work, an impression 
room, and two rooms and waiting-room for extracting, and a room 
devoted to radiographic work. There are six lecture-rooms, three of 
which are arranged on the amphitheater plan and have seats for 240 
students. One of these is for the oral surgery clinic which has a 
waiting-room for surgical patients, a room for diagnosis and the 
preparation of patients, and a recovery room with sufficient beds for 


the temporary care of patients. The other three lecture rooms have 
seats for 175, 100, and 75 students. There are eight recitation rooms., 
each accommodating thirty-five or more students. Other rooms are 
the anatomical laboratory, which is placed well apart, and the labo- 
ratories for prosthetic technics, operative technics, chemistry, biology, 
histolog) % physiolog\% general pathology, bacteriology, materia medica. 
and for physics; the photographic laboratory, the students' reading- 
room, the library, and the museum. 

A new laboratory for scientific research is equipped with every 
facility for advance study of the many unsolved problems which 
confront the dental profession. This laboratory has every conven- 
ience for bacteriological study, animal experimentation and the study 
of human material from the general and oral surgery clinics. 


■ The Library and the adjoining reading-room occupy, together 
with the attached Journal Reading Room, 3,800 feet of floor space. 
It is furnished with reading tables and chairs for about one hun- 
dred students. The Library contains '3,338 volumes of books on 
dental and collateral subjects; a fine supply of dictionaries and ency- 
clopedias conveniently placed in the reading-room for easy consulta- 
tion ; and a nearly complete list of the dental journals that have been 
published in the English language, with about 25,000 duplicate num- 
bers. The books most used by the students are duplicated, up to 
six or twelve, and a few to fifteen copies. The books and journals 
may be used in the reading-room without restriction, and when 
the duplication of volumes will allow, they may be drawn out as a 
circulating library. 


The Museum, which in many of its sections is the most com- 
plete collection of illustrative material in existence, is open to inspec- 
tion and study. The cases are arranged to show the specimens to 
the best advantage. 

Recently the very extensive private collection of Dr. William 
Bebb has been added to the Museum under the title of the Bebb 
Collection. This collection consists of paleontological and modern 
animal and human bones, skeletons and skulls; many varieties of 
preserved fur animals, and a very choice collection of ancient and 
modern-obsolete dental instruments, tools and equipment; many 


volumes of rare old books on dentistry in various languages; and 
engravings, paintings, lithographs, and cartoons illustrative of the 
development of dentistry. All of these have been arranged in most 
attractive manner for exhibition and study. 

The comparative anatomy specimens consist of heads with the 
teeth, with the exception of the gorilla and chimpanzee, of which there 
are full skeletons. There is a sufficient number of varieties of each of 
the several orders to afford specimens of every kind of tooth form 
and of every variety of placement in mammals, saurians, and snakes, 
with a large variety of fishes. 

The principal specimens of human skulls are, first, an excellent 
mounting of the separated bones of the adult; second, a fine set of 
dissections in a series showing the development of the teeth and the 
roots from the first appearance in the fetus to the full adult devel- 
opment, and illustrating the absorption of the roots of the deciduous 
teeth, the shedding process, and the replacement by permanent teeth ; 
also the absorption of the alveolar processes after the loss of teeth, 
with the changes that occur in the form of the bones of the jaws 
from childhood to old age. 

The Museum contains also a valuable collection of human teeth 
of abnormal forms; a very full and complete set of specimens illus- 
trating interproximal wear and the flattening of the points of inter- 
proximal contact. It is especially rich in casts of cases of super- 
numerary teeth ; some illustrations of the very early forms of artificial 
teeth, of manufactured porcelain teeth, and of dental instruments, 
illustrating the development in these lines. This collection has been 
made in the School largely by students and by alumni, and is being 
continually increased by donations from those who have met with 
specimens unusual or rare in practice. 

It also contains a most complete representation of the progress 
of Dental Hygiene and Prophylaxis as represented by the progressive 
steps of the development of the toothbrush, and a complete collection 
of dental instruments and appliances now obsolete in modern prac- 
tice of dentistry. 


The central location of the school and its convenient access from 
every point affords many and peculiar advantages to its students. 
It gives them the widest possible range of choice of residence while 
attending the school, without inconvenience in coming and going. 
It also gives the school the widest range of territory from which to 


draw the extensive clinic so necessary to a great dental school. The 
patients for this clinic come from all parts of the city of Chicago 
and its suburbs. The personal influence of the students of the 
school, each one of whom draws from his own friends and acquaint- 
ances, made in and about his place of residence, is an invaluable 
adjunct to the number who come simply as acquaintances of the 
school. Patients who come as the friends of students make up the 
personal clinical practice of the individual student. 

In this the out-of-town students seem to be in no respect less 
favored than the student w^hose home is in the city. This gaining, 
and holding, a> personal clinical practice under the supervision of 
the instructors in the clinic rooms has come to be one of the features 
of this school that has a telling effect upon the after-practice of its 
students. By this plan of work the student not only learns the 
theory of practice and the manipulations of practical operations in 
dentistry, but he passes at once to the work of real experience in 
building a practice for himself; in gaining that skill in professional 
comity and personal manner between himself and his patients, which 
is as necessary to him in after years, in drawing together and main- 
taining a practice, as his knowledge of dental diseases and his skill 
in their treatment. 

For these reasons the residence of students in groups in widely 
different portions of the city is favored. This also gives the benefits 
of a more homelike life, while giving in the aggregate a far better 
conception of life in a great city and decidedly better opportunity 
to draw upon its advantages, while shunning the disadvantages of 
large gatherings of students in a single locality. 

Chicago is a great city and gives many opportunities to the stu- 
dent who learns to avail himself of them. Lincoln Park on the 
north offers, besides its beautiful pleasure grounds, some extensive 
botanical gardens and winter conservatories, where all manner of 
plants may be enjoyed and studied; a fine zoological collection, 
where a large variety of animal and bird life may be studied, and 
the Museum of Natural History, in which there is a very large 
collection of birds, animals and fossil remains of extinct animal life. 
Jackson and Washington Parks on the south, besides their extensive 
pleasure grounds, also offer splendid botanical gardens and winter 
conservatories, while the Field Columbian Museum offers a rare 
collection of Natural History specimens especially suited for the 
study of comparative dental anatomy, of modern and ancient skulls 
and the condition of the teeth in the various races and types of men 


in different ages. The admission to this museum is free to students 
on presentation of their matriculation tickets to this school. 

The Art Institute of Chicago is located within easy walking 
distance of the School; it offers many free admission hours, making 
its cultural opportunities conveniently available. 


A number of libraries are accessible to students who have taste 
for study, or for looking up subjects of scientific or literary interest, 
or in connection with special studies. 

The University library collections offer very abundant facilities 
for students. They are ample in the number of books adapted to 
the different schools and are so situated as to be easily accessible; 
generally within the school buildings. They consist of the College 
Library, the Law Library, the Medical Library and the Theological 

Chicago Library (773,403 volumes) is on Michigan Avenue 
and Washington Street, five minutes' walk from the school. It is 
one of the finest libraries in the country. Students may receive books 
from this library when vouched for by responsible persons known 
to the officials. This library has also many branch offices in different 
parts of the city, from which books may be received on application. 
These are convenient to many of the boarding places of students. 

The Newberry Library is very large (367,015 volumes) and, 
besides general works, has also a large collection devoted to history. 
It is on North Clark Street and Walton Place, and may be reached 
In a ten minutes' walk. This is a reference library and books can 
be used only in its reading rooms. 

The John Crerar Library (368,508 volumes) occupies one 
and one-half floors in the Marshall Field Building, corner Wabash 
Avenue and Washington Street. It is devoted mainly to the natural, 
the phj^sical and the social sciences, with their applications, but has 
one large room containing medical and dental books and periodicals. 
It is a most excellent collection of books. It is a reference library, 
and its books are used only in its reading rooms. 


Admission and Instruction 

In teaching staff, requirements for admission, curriculum, equip- 
ment and facilities of every kind, Northwestern University Dental 
School complies fully with the rules of the Dental Educational 
Council of America for Class A Dental Schools. 

For statement relative to Students' Army Training Corps and 
the Enlisted Medical Reserve Corps see page 9. 


A candidate for admission to the Dental School for the year 
1918-1919 may be accepted upon presentation of a diploma, or equiv- 
alent certificate, from an accredited high school or academy which re- 
quires for graduation not less than fifteen units of high school work 
obtained in a four year course beyond the eighth grade of the elemen- 
tary school. No conditions on the foregoing entrance requirement will 
be allowed. An accredited high school is defined as one which is ac- 
credited as a four year high school by the United States Bureau of 
Education, or by a University which is a member of the Association 
of American Universities, or by the State University of the State in 
which the high school is located. 

In the case of an applicant who is not a graduate from a high 
school or academy, as defined above, the full equivalent of such educa- 
tion in each individual case must be established by the Committee on 
Examinations, appointed by the Illinois State Superintendent of 
Public Instruction, and attested by him. The Committee on Exam- 
inations may issue a certificate upon presentation of credentials from 
schools attended, or upon the passing of written examinations given 
by the Committee, or both.* 

The credential covering the candidate's preliminary education 
must include not less than three Units in fEnglish, one unit in 
Algebra, one unit in Geometry, and one unit in Physics, Chemistry, 
or Biology. The remaining nine units may be made up of other 
subjects included in standard High School courses. 

A unit is a course of study requiring daily recitations on one 

*The Illinois law provides that this Committee on Examinations shall 
charge a fee of ten dollars for each person who presents for examination 
or for the evaluation of credentials. 

fForeigners from non-English speaking countries, who present more than 
four units of foreign language, and who can speak, read and write the 
English language, will be accepted as meeting the requirement in English. 


topic for a full school year. No credit amounting to less than a half 
unit will be allowed toward the fifteen units required. 

This School will receive no student who is not present within 
ten days after the opening day of the session in each year, or in case 
of illness properly certified by the attending physician, within twenty 
days after the opening day. It is desirable that students should 
register early, since the order of assignment of seats in the lecture 
halls is based on the order of registration. The record of attend- 
ance is kept from the opening day, and students who may be admitted 
at a later day will lose their attendance credit for the intervening 

Undergraduate students are not received for special courses in 

Students registering agree thereby to accept the discipline imposed 
by the Faculty. 


Students wishing credit for courses parallel to courses required in 
this School, should bring credentials for same, and should present 
their notebooks. No credit on the dental course will be allowed for 
high school chemistry, physics, botany, zoology, or biology. 

Students who present certificates from other Class A dental 
schools covering subjects required in this School, may be credited w^ith 
such studies if their preliminary education was such as would have 
admitted them to this School as Freshmen, and if the credentials are 
satisfactory to the Dean and to the professors in the respective depart- 
ments; but credits are not accepted unconditionally. The Faculty 
reserves the right to examine any applicant for advanced standing, if 
in its judgment that should be desirable. When admitted to the 
Senior class the candidate must do one full year's work in this 

Examinations for advanced standing and for the removal of con- 
ditions in the Dental course will begin on September 23, 1918 — 
one week before the course begins — and no make-up examinations 
will be given at a later time. A schedule of these examinations will 
be furnished upon request. 


The course covers four years. The year begins on the first 
Tuesday in October and closes on Commencement Day of the Uni- 
versity in June. There are not less than thirty-tVv^o weeks of actual 
instruction given, six days in each week. 



A postgraduate, or practitioner's course has been arranged which 
begins the first Mondaj^ in February of each year and continues 
through four full "weeks. A special announcement of this course 
will be found on page 47. 


A special course for those entering the Army or Navy Dental 
Corps is scheduled to begin on Feb. 3, 1919, and continue four weeks. 
A special announcement of this course will be found on page 49. 
See pages 57 to 61 for lists of those who took post-graduate and 
military service courses in 19 17-18. 


Students who desire to obtain the Bachelor of Science and Doctor 
of Dental Surgery degrees may enroll on a combined Literary and 
Dental course, and thus shorten the required time for earning the 
two degrees from eight to seven years. This privilege is open to 
students who during their first three years have maintained a uniform 
record of good scholarship. A candidate for the degree of Bachelor 
of Science who has been a student in the College of Liberal Arts for 
at least one 5^ear may enroll upon the combined course. 

Schedule of Courses 


Special Notice — Northwestern University has been selected by 
the Government for the establishment of one of the new Students' 
Army Training Corps. The Dental School will have its own 
officers and corps, and as the members of the corps will have ten 
hours a week of military training, some modification of the regular 
School schedule will be necessary. For announcement regarding 
the Students' Army Training Corps, see page 9. 

Beginning with the session of 191 5-16 the general plan of teach- 
ing was changed by the division of classes into small sections for 
recitation and laboratory periods, in order that the student might 
receive more thorough instruction and be brought into closer relations 
with the instructors. To accomplish this purpose, the building was 
remodeled to provide necessary additional rooms and laboratory 
facilities, and the teaching staflF was increased in every department. 

In the new four-year schedule, a general rearrangement of courses 
has been made by which better co-ordination and sequence of related 


subjects has been obtained. Technical laboratory courses have been 
extended to better prepare students to undertake practical opera- 
tions in the clinic, and opportunity is also provided for increased 
clinical experience. 

Students are expected to take the courses in the order enumer- 
ated, but some deviation from this rule may be allowed in cases 
approved by the Faculty. 

The courses in the several departments are described under the 
department headings in subsequent pages. The order in which 
courses are to be taken is here indicated.

Technical Drawing 


a. Laboratory — This course is planned to give the student train- 
ing in drawing which will enable him to understand more readily 
and to portray more clearly the technical features of many problems 
presented in the dental course and in practice. Second semester. One 
three-hour period a week. 


The Operative, Prosthetic, Orthodontia, Extraction and Radio- 
graphic clinics are open to students' practice from 9 a.m. to 5 P.M. 
each week day during the school year, as well as during the summer 
vacation. There is at all times an abundant number of patients. It 
is intended that this clinical practice shall be as much like an 
actual dental practice as possible. The development of the ability 
to obtain and hold a practice, the observance of professional courtesy 
toward patients, so essential to success, is regarded equal in impor- 
tance to the development of manipulative ability. 


General Statements 


The degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery is conferred upon stu- 
dents recommended therefor by the Faculty of the School. Candi- 
dates are recommended who have attended the required courses of 
lectures, who have passed satisfactorily all required examinations in 
the subjects of study; who have completed the required clinical and 
laboratory work; who in the judgment of the Faculty are of fit moral 
character and- are twenty-one years of age, and who have discharged 
in full all financial obligations to the University. 


A dental scholastic honor society, the Omicron Kappa Upsilon, 
was organized in 19 16, upon the initiative of Northwestern Univer- 
sity Dental School. 

Membership is awarded to students who throughout their dental 
course have met every requirement without condition or failure, and 
whose record of grades earned during their entire course gives them 
highest rank. Twelve per cent of the graduating class of each year 
can achieve the honor of such membership. 

Summer Clinics 

The clinic rooms will be open all the year for the benefit of 
students who may wish to gain greater experience in clinical practice 
under competent supervision. The number of demonstrators during 
the summer Avill be ample for the class that may choose to remain 
at the school. The clinical material is abundant, and an excellent 
opportunity is afforded for clinical practice. 

Clinical Material 

The value and adequacy of the clinical instruction and experi- 
ence in practice to students is inestimable. The extent of it can be 
best understood by an examination of the subjoined condensed tabular 
statement, extracted from the Examiner's report for the year 191 7, 
showing the number of persons applying for clinical service. 




January 953 1,012 1,965 

February 908 730 1,638 

March 983 976 i,959 

April 907 797 1,704 

May 929 551 1,480 

June 680 348 1,028 

July 460 255 715 

August 858 338 1,196 

September 1,180 505 1,685 

October 1,162 979 2,141 

November 981 847 1,828 

December 661 607 1,268 

10,662 7,945 18,607 

The special patients are assigned to such students of their ac- 
quaintance as they ask to have take care of their cases, while the 
general patients are assigned by the Examiner to such students as 
need the particular experience and practice that their cases involve. 
Many of these general patients have come to the school for a number 
of 3'ears and continue to come in the same manner as they would 
go to the office of a dental practitioner. The school has thus acquired 
a very large clinic, really large enough for the instruction of a fairly 
large class of students, but the students are encouraged to have their 
friends ask for their especial services, as a step in the direction of the 
teaching of practice building. 

The operations performed for these 18,607 patients during the 
year included the following: 

8,832 gold fillings. 
2,715 gold inlays. 
8,881 amalgam fillings. 
1,492 cement fillings. 

537 pulps devitalized. 
1,594 pulps removed — cocain. 
-733 dead pulps removed. 

90 abscess treatments. 
268 root canal treatments. 
3,108 root fillings. 
7,331 scalings, and peridental 
membrane treatments. 
965 surgical treatments. 
23,826 teeth extracted. 
821 gas administrations. 

6,296 local anesthetics. 
71 orthodontia cases. 
17,235 radiographs, mouth films 
1,974 vulcanite dentures. 
13 gold dentures. 
13 aluminum dentures. 
25 Watt's-metal dentures. 
621 dentures repaired. 
333 gold crowns. 
382 Richmond crowns. 
129 detachable pin crowns. 
162 cast base crowns. 

6 other crowns. 
686 bridges. 
795 crown or bridge repairs. 



Text-books and reference books will be on sale in the Library of 
the school at publishers' prices. There will be a small profit from 
the sale of these books, which will be used for the benefit of the 
library. Each student will be required to have the books designated 
below before participating in either recitation or laboratory exercises. 
Many reference books in the library may be used as needed.

The instruments essential to the students in the several depart- 
ments of the school have been carefully studied and determined. 
Much care has been taken in the selection of the instrument sets that 
the variety of forms may be sufficient for the student's needs without 
being excessive. Close study of this subject and long, careful obser- 
vation of students and the progress they make in the attainment of 
manipulative skill show their progress to be closely related to their 
instrument equipment. Therefore this school must demand that the 
instrument sets required be obtained by each student as a condition 
to his continuance in school work. 

In operative dentistry it is found that a close adherence to the 
formula plan, in the study of cutting instruments particularly, is 
essential in teaching the important subject of cavity preparation, and 
this will be carried out critically in all the departments of the school. 
This teaching is begun in the technic classes and the same lines of 
instruction are followed progressively by teachers and demonstrators 
in all of the departments to the end of the Senior year, the same 
instrument sets being used throughout the course of study. 

In prosthetic dentistry and in the several laboratories a similar 
care as to instruments is maintained. 

The instruments in the list are required because they are essen- 
tial to the student's progress, and students must provide them. 
Students should not bring with the??!, nor purchase, instruments of 
other patterns, for they cannot be received as equivalents of the 
required sets. They are the same as those that have been required in 
former years. No student is required to make changes in his instru- 
ment sets during his four years' course, and these instruments form 
his instrument equipment for entering practice after graduation. 

Instruments and appliances are required to be of form 
and quality approved by the school. For the year 191 8-19 the School 
has arranged with several reliable Dental Supply Houses to furnish 
the required equipment for each class in sealed packages, and these 
packages will be delivered through a representative of this School. 
Each student is charged for the complete equipment of instruments, 
appliances and books, all of which will be delivered at the time of 
payment of tuition.

Fees and Expenses 


Matriculation Fee $5-00 

This fee is to be paid when a student first matriculates in any 
department of the Universit)^, and covers subsequent matriculations 
in the same or other departments. It is to be paid but once and is in 
no case returnable. 

Registration Deposit, each year $5.00 

This deposit must be paid when names are enrolled for classes. 
It will be credited on the tuition fee for the current year. It is not 
returnable in case the student fails to attend. If the first matricula- 
tion of the student is in the Dental School, the matriculation fee will 
serve as a registration fee for that year, but the matriculation fee is 
not credited on the tuition fee. 

Tuition Fee J each year $200.00 

This fee includes the registration deposit, but not the matricula- 
tion fee. It includes all laboratory fees for equipment, supplies, 
manuals and notebooks. Each student is provided with a locker 
for the protection of his private property. The student must furnish 
his own lock. 

Final Examination Fee, for Seniors $10.00 

Time of Payment of Tuition — The tuition fee is payable at the 
beginning of the school year. It may be paid in two installments, 
$100.00 at the beginning of the first semester and $100.00 at the 
beginning of the second semester. If installments are not paid within 
ten days of the opening of the semester, $2.00 will be added, but 
in no case may payment be deferred more than thirty days. Payments 
should be made in currency or in Chicago exchange drawn to the 
order of Northwestern University. Out-of-town personal checks are 
not accepted. 

Refunds — No fees for tuition will be refunded except in cases 
of sickness. If on account of serious illness a student withdraws 
from the School before the end of the school year, a share of his 
tuition fee may be refunded, provided he secures from the Dean a 
statement of honorable standing, and from a physician a certificate 
that his health will not permit him to remain in attendance. No 
application for a refund will be considered unless made within thirty 
days after withdrawal from the School on account of sickness. 



The amounts given below are as nearly correct as can be de- 
termined in advance, owing to the changes which may occur in prices 
or in the selection of books, instruments and other equipment. As 
many of the books and almost all of the other equipment listed for 
each of the first three years are required in the succeeding years, 
the figures given apply only to those students entering this school as 
Freshmen. Students entering with advanced standing, or by transfer 
from other Dental Schools, will be required to purchase whatever 
may be necessary of the books and equipment listed for preceding 

For the year 191 8-19, the School will supply the books and 
equipment for the several classes. On account of the difficulty of 
securing equipment, orders were placed far in advance, so that stu- 
dents are assured of having everything necessary for the pursuit of 
their work. In order to reduce the cost of equipment as much as 
possible, the School will supply certain items, such as student operat- 
ing cases, etc., which the student will not need after graduation, upon 
a rental basis. 

The student should come prepared to purchase the complete outfit 
of books and instruments at the opening of school, in addition to at 
least the first semester tuition. 


Freshman year, books as per required list, about $ 50.00 

Instruments and other equipment, as per required list, about. . . . 125.00 


Sophomore year, books, about $ 20.00 

Instruments and other equipment, about 240.00 


Junior year, books, about $ 20.00 

Instruments and other equipment, about 80.00 

Senior year, books, about $ 25.00 



Freshman year, matriculation, tuition, books and equipment $ 380.00 

Sophomore year, tuition, books and equipment 375-oo 

Junior year, tuition, books and equipment ^ 250.00 

Senior year, tuition, final examination fee, books and equipment. 235.00 

TOTAL $1,240.00 

This is an average of about $300.00 per year. The equipment 
includes practically everything required for a dentist's office, except 
dental chair and office furniture, so that while the expense for equip- 
ment in school is considerable, it should not be counted as a school 
expense, but rather as a part of the expense of office equipment. After 
the Sophomore year, the expense in addition to the tuition is small, so

Post-Graduate Course 

The annual post-graduate course will begin on February 3r(i, 
1919, and continue four weeks. There will be two hours of lectures 
and six hours of laboratory courses, demonstrations or clinical work 
each day. A clinical operating room, and a laboratory for prosthetic 
work, porcelain and inlay work, entirely separate from those used by 
the regular students of the School, have been provided for post-grad- 
uate students, each of whom will have opportunity to do a specified 
amount of work in the laboratories and of operating in the clinic 
under direction of the instructors in charge of the various courses. 
Complete outfits of instruments, tools, and materials will be supplied 
by the School. 

In this course especial attention will be given to the following 

Oral Surgery — Acute infections of the mouth and their treatment : 
infections of the maxillary sinuses; fractures of the maxillary bones; 
tumors of the mouth; resection of roots, removal of impacted teeth, 
etc. Lectures and clinics. Professor Gilmer, Professor Potts, Dr. 
Meyer and Assistants. 

Diseases of the Peridental Membrane — Chronic suppurative peri- 
cementitis and its treatment; focal mouth infections in relation to 
systemic disease. Work of the past few years in the Research De- 
partment of the School in the study of the patholog}' of the investing 
tissues of the teeth the basis for rational treatment; a thorough and 
practical system of examination and determination of plans of manage- 
ment of cases; methods of treatment radically different from those 
commonly employed ; methods of prevention of the diseases of the 
peridental membrane will be presented. Professor Black, Dr. Hatton, 
Dr. Merrifield and Assistants. 

Technic of Pulp and Root Canal Treatment — Recently gathered 
statistics show that a very small percentage of abscesses occur m 
cases in which good root fillings are made, and that abscesses occur 
in about 65 per cent of cases in which root fillings are not well made. 
It is therefore the duty of ever}^ dentist to bring his root canal technic 
up to the highest degree of efficiency. The technic presented in this 
course is thorough and definitely systematized. Those taking the 
course will have ample opportunity to gain practical experience in 
the special clinic, and all operations will be checked with radiographs. 
Professor Gethro, Dr. Lundquist and Assistants. 


Operative Dentistry — Cavity preparation, technic for j^old fill- 
ings, gold inlays, amalgam fillings. The principles of scientific cavity 
preparation w^ill be discussed, and stress will be placed on the im- 
portance of thoroughly systematic procedures by each operator in 
order to get practical results in daily practice. Many of the finer 
details will be brought out in the operations in the post-graduate 
clinic. Professor Blackwell, Dr. Matteson and Assistants. 

Prosthetic Dentistry — Porcelain jacket crowns, baked porcelain 
crowns, fixed and removable bridge-work, along most modern lines 
to conserve the pulps of teeth and prevent inflammations of the 
gingivae, and the construction of artificial dentures to secure anatomi- 
cal occlusion will receive most attention in this course. Each member 
of the class will have opportunity to carry out work in the laboratory 
and to construct practical cases for patients. Professor Prothero, 
Dr. Stout, Dr. Ridgway and Assistants. 

Orthodontia — Many cases of orthodontia are in progress in the 
School clinic at all times and these will be presented before the class 
each Saturday for discussion. A considerable number of these patients 
have appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so that those who 
desire will have ample opportunity to study them. Lectures will 
also be given throughout the course. Professor Sellery, Dr. Buckley 
and Dr. McClain. 

Anesthesia and Extraction of Teeth — This course will consist 
of a series of lectures and demonstrations on the administration of 
nitrous oxid and oxygen and the use of novocain. Demonstrations will 
be given in connection with the oral surgery clinics and daily in the 
extraction clinic. Those taking the course will have ample oppor- 
tunity for practical experience, both in the uses of these methods of 
anesthesia and in the extraction of teeth. The extraction clinic is 
busy from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. daily. Nearly 24,000 teeth were ex- 
tracted during the year 191 7. Dr. Hatton, Dr. Merrifield, and Dr. 

Dental Radiography — This course will consist of practical dem- 
onstrations in taking radiographs and in reading them. Thousands 
of films are mounted for study before illuminating boxes. This de- 
partment is busy from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. daily. Over 17,000 mouth 
films were made during the year 191 7. Dr. Westaby and Assistants. 

Dental Histology — A combined lecture and laboratory course in 
the study of those features of dental histology which are of the most 
practical value in the study of diseases of the peridental membrane and 
in operative dentistry. Professor Thomas and Professor Skillen. 


Clinical Experience — The clinical material available Is prac- 
tically unlimited, and each practitioner taking the course will be 
supplied with patients for practical cases. A special operating room 
is fully equipped for the exclusive use of those taking the course.
